Off-grid and Backup

The presence of a functional electricity grid is not always as obvious as it would seem to be. An insufficient infrastructure is often the cause for an unreliable grid. Things become even more difficult when there is no grid at all. And yet you are in need of a reliable electricity supply. A local and properly functioning system is the only answer at this point. Victron Energy offers you such an answer. We are proud to offer you our modern translation for freedom and independence. Energy, Anytime, Anywhere.

Remote Congolese Hospital gets private power.

The Kibuluge General Hospital in the Shabunda territory of the Democratic Republic of Congo is so remote that it’s difficult to get to it by road. When you depend on a diesel generator for operational power, just obtaining fuel can be a headache. In the past the hospital, which is run by Medicins sans Frontière […]

Sophisticated Hybrid Generators

Rune Eilertsen, Managing Director of Hybridgenerator ApS in Denmark, certainly knows how to grasp a good idea and implement it. Whilst many companies use Victron Energy Inverter/Chargers supplied by battery systems to provide power during low load diesel generator periods, when not running at more engine and environmentally friendly full generator loads – Rune decided […]

Pietrosella – the traditional Corsican village of the future?

One man’s dream to build an off-grid eco-village in Corsica is being realized as we speak. The idea is to build ten houses nestled discreetly into the hills overlooking Ajaccio bay, together with a community building where all the residents can gather at the end of each day to talk, drink wine, and play cards. […]

Off-Grid living, working & educating at Lackan Cottage Farm

I first heard from Steven Golemboski-Byrne of Lackan Cottage Farm around four years ago and wrote a blog in 2015 about their family lifestyle. Things have certainly moved on since then – now Steve is even more of a Victron Energy aficionado, to the extent his product knowledge and practical expertise has increased – which […]

3-Phase in the Outback?

Cattle and Sheep stations in Australia’s remote outback are typically powered by diesel generators. Running power-hungry industrial/agricultural equipment – together with domestic supply – they bang away consuming between 100 and 200 litres of diesel per day. A lot of stations were established in the 1800’s. They’re run by tough people used to hard work, […]
